Starlight Music

Voices mix and blend

hymns of light, love and healing.

Friends in Harmony meet, 

we sing blues, folk and gospel. 

After the community sing,

I leave refreshed, 

take a gift of music 

into the peace of a moonless night.

Lyrics drive with me,

parts we sang hum in my skin, 

tag along for a restful sleep

at Still Point Center.

A majestic white hawk left the sky at dusk,

cirrus streams trail the sky in her wake, 

an arch of light swoops,

illuminates the heavens

over dark woods and fields. 

Accepting the Milk Way’s invitation, 

I linger outside on a bench.

Night, warm and hushed, 

vibrates with earth songs. 

In a deep expanse of constellations, 

stars whisper, flicker, sing to each other, 

welcomes echo, melodies flash, 

partings quiver in notes and lullabies.

All sounds and memories 

of life float in the universe.

Light wraps 

and carries infinite concerts.

Anyone who listens hard

to swirls, sparks and specks

might hear a distant hawk screech

in flickering starlight.
